Properties and Methods of the "session" Object
This section describes properties and methods supported by the 'session' object provided by the ASP programming interface at run-time.
As mentioned in previous tutorials, ASP programming interface provide a built-in run-time
object called "session", which holds information and methods
common to all ASP pages requested from a single user.
The "session" object supports these properties and methods:
Contents: A collection object acting as a cache for different ASP pages to
share information. Since "Contents" is the default collection, we write
'session.Contents("myVar")' as 'session("myVar")'.
Abandon(): A method to destroy the current session.
SessionID: A read only property to return the id of the current session.
TimeOut: A property to set timeout period on this session.
OnStart(): An event handler to be called when the first HTTP request comes
from a new user.
OnEnd(): An event handler to be called the session is abandoned or timed out.
